2013 Brouilly ‘Cuvee de Fous’ - £21.70 per bottle

Our ‘Best of Beaujolais’ mixed case hopes to show you just a few of the great, characterful, and soulful wines that are being produced in and amongst the different crus of Beaujolais. The boom of Beaujolais Noveau, led to the overuse of chemicals and pesticides in vineyards all over the region, in order to consistently produce a homogenised and simple style of wine. However, this scouring of the vineyards, left the land and the wines lifeless and without identity, or soul. The winemakers we bring to you today, are amongst those fighting to regain the identity of the wines of Beaujolais, bringing life and personality back to their vineyards, and to their wines. These are serious wines, that should be decanted in order to truly experience all that the wines have to offer. This is Beaujolais as you have never tasted it before!

2012 Morgon ‘VV’ – Chateau la Grange Cochard

The Morgon Vieille Vigne, comes from vines averaging over 70 years old, and is aged entirely in the old oak foudre. It is sumptuous and elegant, with light touches of pepper. Luscious deep cherry, raspberry, strawberry and plums come through clearly on the palate and the complimentary tannins are silky and soft, with lovely minerality and life. Wonderfully balanced and expressive.

2013 Moulin a Vent ‘Champ de Cour’ – Richard Rottiers

The ‘Champs de Cour’ is superb with hints of violets and roses complete with a wonderful complexity and more than a passing resemblance to Pinot Noir. Wonderful clarity and direction results in an approachable Beaujolais with far more depth and complexity than your standard Moulin a Vent! Even the Wine Advocate agrees, rewarding the 2013 Champ de Cour 93 points and saying ‘if you’ve not tasted Richard’s wines before then do yourself a favour’.

2013 Brouilly ‘Cuvee de Fous’ – Jean Claude Lapalu

The 2013 Cuvee de Fous is 100% destemmed and made from vines that are over 100 years old. This is the most introspective and intriguing bouquet on the nose of his range. Blackberry, briary fruit are accompanied by limestone and flinty notes. The medium bodied palate is laced with supple and smooth tannins, surrounded by a core of very dark and pure berry fruits. Its sublime, the balance of tension and release, weight and levity. This is one of the finest examples of Beaujolais from Brouilly you will come across.
